Official looking email is labeled fraud by IRS

An official-looking email being circulated to local recipients has been labeled a fraud by the IRS.  The email is shown below, and features an official-looking government link with a return email that has the .gov and IRS referenced in it.  This is a fraud, and is being turned over to the IRS investigative unit, said Carrie Resch of the IRS.  “The IRS never sends emails like this – we don’t send unsolicited emails about ANY tax account matters,” she said.

A sample of the fraudulent email is below:

Taxpayer ID: news-00000174073547US
